Is it legal for a bonus to be prorated to when you came back to work from maternity leave?

Typically a bonus becomes payable in accordance with the terms of the plan or during a regularly scheduled cycle. Any payments made to you during the course of a maternity leave will impact your EI benefits so it is possible that the company chose to delay payment in order to avoid any disruption with other benefits.
